I have family that live in Lompoc. When I go to visit they always want me to go to Saletti's restaurant, I think they are (rightfully) embarrassed by any other food establishment there! Well, I finally took the plunge... Wow, what a HUGE disappointment! First of all, the new owner(s) is/are so complacent (Lazy?) (Afraid of their employees?) that the employees think that THEY are the owners which seems to be just fine by the actual two new owners! The employees are very arrogant and have a Grandiose Complex...""Yes, No"", Whatever... Not much other conversation here... (to good for us ""out of towners?"") While they are busy horse ass*ng around, flirting with one another! Oh well, We ordered cocktails appetizers and drinks. The dinner came before the cocktails or appetizers. (Oh, by the way, we never did get our appetizers) The food is what I would expect to recieve ""on the road"", nothing at all exceptional or anything to write home about. but ok if the price wasn't out the roof! Now call me spoiled but I go to a supposedly ""nice"" (EXPENSIVE) place to relax, have a nice dinner, and (for the sky high prices they charge) pampered just a tiny bit!...fully expecting to pay the price... Absolutely NOT HAPPENING HERE! I guess it is partially my fault for agreeing to go, but then again having grown up in an Italian family, and loving the friendly family atmosphere and delicious food, I guess I kind of expected it here, as that IS how they promote themselves after all! All I can say is that they should drop the ""ITALIAN"" from their name and/or description!
Cons: too many to list
